    I love this day. It's like the draft for the NFL. LSU starts hot with Fournette, RB, who could probably start for the Saints. Sick with talent. They also get a very nice DT out of Texas. Oregon steals a very good safety from A&M and RB from USC.

    Saban might be the best recruiter ever to walk the earth! He is a **** but he is good.

    You know what...Most of what people think about Nick is media based....(and you know how much Nick loves the media).
    What I'm getting at is...If Nick was as big a **** and scummy human being as what most people seem to think...why do recruits
    and their parents just love him to death,when they meet him..

    Not a hard sell when you've won the natl title several times.

    It's not just Saban, in fact the position coaches do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to recuiting.

    I don't give a crap what the media says, it is generally wrong or obvious anyway. I just don't like him because of his time in Miami. I grew up on Bama football so that was a tough pill to swallow when he went there from Miami.

    If more people would watch old Bama games when Joe Willie was QB,before his knees were shot out..they would understand how
    much of a true badass he was.

    Back then Alabama football was a southern thing as they always represented the best program down this way.Everyone rooted for them vs the yankee teams. Bear was god.

    Never happen. The younger crowd prefers the laughable nonsense that Namath was overrated. They fixate on stats and somehow believe the game was played the same then as now.

    I particularly love the theme that Namath didn't do much in the Super Bowl win. I attended that game as a kid. Namath was masterful. We were sitting in the west end zone, surrounded by members of the Baltimore Colts Corral. Professional fans in fancy attire. They were frustrated all game that Namath was slowing the game down and controlling possession. I can still hear them cursing under their breath, and shaking their heads. There wasn't a play clock in those days but you could do it in your head. It was obvious throughout that Namath was bleeding until the final seconds. It was brilliant strategy. The opening quarter demonstrated that Baltimore owned physical advantages. They blew the chance to take an early lead. Namath wasn't going to turn it into a free flowing game and allow the Colts to recover. Instead he made sure to control field position and ensure the fewest number of possessions possible. To this day it's one of the greatest quarterbacking performances I've ever seen. Winston Hill at left tackle was the Jets' best run blocker. Whenever Namath sensed that Hill was alone on that side, Namath changed the play and sent Matt Snell to the left.

    Last weekend Peyton completed dozens of passes. Eventually the backfitting adjusters will claim Peyton had a good game. :lol:
